Computing linguistically-based textual inferences
Conferences & Talks

Nancy NLP Seminar at LORIA

20 March 2008
Nancy, France



This talk provides an overview and a demo of PARC's Bridge system. The particular task that we focus on is entailment and contradiction detection (ECD), a more refined variant of the PASCAL RTE (Recognizing Textual Entailment) challenge. Given a passage of text and a query, does the query sentence follow from the text in the passage, is it contradicted by it, or neither?
